Happy Birthday my Clare Bear!

When Clare was young, I called her Clare Bear because those days, the Care Bears were very popular and we had so many of them, Care Bear, Clare Bear, so the name sticks to my little baby girl....

that was then.....

 

and this is now....



Happy Birthday Clare Bear!

Here's the card for Clare

it was inspired by this card (next picture) created HERE by Kate at JustKateCrafting.


I wanted an adult coloring book for the longest time, but they never let you use coupon at Michael's for that,  I refused to get one there so I created my own with this Doodlie-Do stamp set from PTI. As you can see, the coloring still need practice, I like those with Copic Markers, and the one with watercoloring pencils didn't turn out so well.


 the scallop edges are from My Creative Time, is called Fun Stitched Edges

I added a lot of butterflies, those were nesting in my glass jar for the longest time.


 also lots of sequins from MFT Citrus Sequin Kit

 

I am linking this card to the following challenges
